18 Celebrities Who Jumped Or Fell To Their Deaths

Celebrity is a privilege bestowed upon the few so that the many can enjoy their talents. That privilege comes with many perks from free (and expensive) gifts to global recognition. What celebrity cannot achieve is an immunity from death; like each one of us – celebrities are not immortal and sooner of later the grim reaper comes for them as it comes for each of us.

These 18 celebrities were called away from this earth much earlier than they might have been; all of them either jumped to their deaths or fell to them in accidents. Tragedy strikes celebrities as much as anyone.
